Full Inboxes Correlate with Early Death

Running a small business most likely means your email inbox is always crowded.  This can be a good sign for business, but it may be hazardous to your health.

According to the study by UC Irvine, individuals who receive a lot of emails are more likely to multi-task and be chronically stressed.  The participants in this category had high elevated rates and were continually on “high alert.”  Meanwhile participants who spent less time checking their email accounts walked around more and had more social interaction.  The study found that these workers were happier and more normal heart rates.

It is impossible to survive in the business world without email.  Make sure you take time leave your computer and socialize to keep your health in check.
